How I Ended Up Choosing a CSU
Choosing which school you want to attend can be quite difficult and frustrating. During my senior year I was stuck between choosing from a CSU or private school. Of course we think that graduating with a degree from a top private school will land us that perfect job afterwards. This is not necessarily true, I ended up choosing a CSU and it was one of the best decisions I have made. I often compare myself with friends that chose a private school over a CSU and I see them struggling everyday financially. Tuition is incredibly low compared to private schools. Here and there I hear my recent graduate friends complaining over their $40,000 or $50,000 loans and I just sit there knowing that I will graduate with no loans because my tuition is affordable and I receive financial aid. As far as landing a good job, that can depend on many different things and not just which school you graduated from. Overall, make a decision where you don’t over burden yourself with a huge loan at a young age.
